stemming on new developments when it comes to monitoring of ally activity by the nsa. new about obama spying. thatsa denies reports obama was told in 2010 of nsa spying on angela merkel and allowed it to continue. on sunday, the german tabloid siding unknown sources again, there are several stories this morning when it comes to the monitoring of allies. we are asking you this morning if the u.s. should rethink how it does those activities. if numbers on the screen -- you want to reach us via tweet and if you want to put something on a facebook page, that is span. it was on the sunday shows yesterday that this topic came up heard one of the voices there, congressman peter king from new york. he is the chairman of the house subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence. he was on nbc's "meet the press" yesterday. he talked about the u.s. spying on france and germany. should stopdent apologizing and stop being. savedality is the nsa has thousands of lives, not just in the united states but in france and germany and throughout europe. have carried out spying operations
. >> reporter: it's an unexpected reality of obama care being told through ant thatna antidotes and media. cbs news has confirmed with insurance companies across the country that more than 2 million people are getting notices they no longer can keep their existing plan. in california 279,000. in michigan 140,000. florida, 300,000. and in new jersey 800,000. and those numbers are certain to go even higher. some companies tell us they've sent letters, but they won't tell us how many. >> what we're seeing now is the reality. coming into play. >> reporter: industry experts like larry levitt of the kaiser family foundation say the insurance companies have no choice. obama care forces them to drop many of their plans that don't meet the law's ten minimum standards, including maternity care, emergency visits mental health treatment and even pediatric dental care. that means consumers have to sign on to new plans even if they don't want or need the more generous coverage. industry experts say about half of the people getting these letters will pay more. half will pay less tha
that president obama has said he wants to appoint and is asking for advice and consent of the senate. but i want to make sure we all understand exactly what this debate sau is all about. at this very moment, there are plenty of u.s. appellate courts that urgently need judges to handle their existing caseload. as my friend, the distinguished presiding officer, knows, former attorney general, there are a lot of district courts around the country that could use additional personnel because they are what are called "judicial emergencies" because they have just heavy caseloads and they need more help. so why in the world would we want to add more judges to a court that doesn't have enough work for them to do? and that's exactly what this debate is all about. i.tit's not about the specific nominees. i.tit's not an ideological batte that we're all familiar with, so much as it is one of practical economics. between 2005 and 2013, the total number of written decisions per active judge on the d.c. circuit declined by 27%. so from 2005 to 2013, the number of written decisions per active judge went down by
've been trying to accomplish both president bush and president obama have tried to figure out how to do this is to win the broader ideological struggle. basically, to stop people in the muslim world from wanting to join organizations like al-qaeda, to figure out what role we can play in bringing greater stability and moving towards a more moderate, effective, competent form of government in of these countries. now, the great challenge here, of course, is number one often conflicts with number two. we see that most notably in the drone campaign. undeniably, it has been effective. without question, the ability of al-qaeda's central leadership to property and plan -- to plot and plan attacks has been significantly degraded. one of the biggest things is we have effectively targeted and disrupted their leadership. when your top terrorists in the world are spending pretty much all their time every day worrying about how they can stay alive, they can't plot and plan as effectively. and that's worked. but the other thing that's very true is that military campaign has also made it more difficult
're not participating in obama care? >> i'm participating in employer-sponsored insurance, which 85% of the country does. >> so you have government insurance, so you're not -- have you gone on the site and tried to enroll or tried to shop for plans? >> i haven't gone on to shop for the plans. i went on and actually signed up for an account and see what it looked like and go through the application process, but did not sign up for coverage. i'm not eligible for coverage, nor did i shop. >> i just want to mention to you a letter that i received from my district, and this man wrote me and said, "my wife has been recently informed by her insurance carrier that her health care policy does not come ply with the affordable care act. now we must purchase the same policy at an 18% increase to our premium. what happened to if you like your insurance you can keep it question?" what would you say to that individual? >> i would take him back to pre-affordable care act days, where, in fact, if you were in the individual market, you were living at a 50% churn. half the people in the individual market, prior to 2010, d
a man as barack obama, the first african-american president, you can trust him, but your litany was damning. so many promises made so many promises broken. not his personal morality but institutions, about laws that he helped to pass and then lied to us about. and that is a grievous difficulty. i'm afraid we're saying to young people around the country, if the president for the sake of political expediencey can lie about everything, then everything is up for grabs. there's no standard versus what you promise and what you believe. its breaches trust and it's a great sadness. >> even if they were not deliberate lies, which is a stretch because this has been the pattern on 0 part of many. if you're selling a signature piece of legislation and the notion you can keep your doctor, keep your coverage, and then a lot of people are coming to find, no, i can't, or retirees are finding they're being jettisoned on to exchanges. and the people who created this new that was a possibility, and steny hoyer said that was something they saw coming but didn't say it. they would be in a long confe
of politicians in making of the film. president obama, bill clinton. they're part of the wallpapers of their lives in a way. they happen to run into them in the day-to-day activities. >> here's dchlt j. and the governor. >> next governor of massachusetts. >> massachusetts. >> thank you. democrats. right for me. then i started to think on my own. >> how's it going, dad? >> oh, you're doing good. >> nice to see you. >> nice to see you too. >> i think maybe we want to talk about the weather or -- i don't know how much politics we want to talk? >> oh, we do get passionate. we know that we live in a great country, the greatest country on earth. we need to lead the world. we're not leading the world. in order to be a lieder, you you have to have followers. the rest of the world doesn't want to follow the united states of america. >> if you're doing something right and no one follows you, it doesn't mean you're wrong. no one has to be behind. that's the problem. look at iraq. no one is behind us. if you want to be the president of the united states, you're never going to please people. >>
's meeting with president obama today. >> i think i agree with just about everything you said. i'm not sure about the sons of iraq. i would be surprised. other than that, i happen to agree with you and i joined a bipartisan letter with minute does, mccain and others to urge the president to make those points. i basically agree with you. also in terms of the failure of the iraqi government to protect the christian minority, to protect the people at camp liberty, for instance, whether or not the government of iraq is the perpetrator of that horrific outrage, they did not carry out that mission if it was to protect that came. the christian minority in iraq is very, very fragile and the relationship to the sunni, if it is what you say, in terms of iraq and the relationship, allowing the iranians to overfly and support assad is so totally terrible. nonetheless, he has a lot to talk about and if they want certain kinds of weapons, there's a lot of skepticism about providing any types of weapons if there are to be a condition to basically doing a number of things differently and making sure that t
is accusing the obama administration of doing. one of violating pakistani sovereignty by launching a military attack on pakistani soil without islamabad's permission. the other thing that islamabad is accusing washington of doing is essentially scuttling - that's the pakistani's word, an effort to broker peace talks with the taliban. the pakistani's are arguing with the death of hakimullah mehsud, everything that they have been trying to achieve has been put back to square one. as a result the pakistani citizens will be at a higher risk of suffering from taliban attacks within the borders. >> hasn't the pakistani government been cooperating with the u.s. and the c.i.a. drone program all along. >> it's quite by assumed that the pakistani government has cooperated with the bush administration and the obama administration on the drone strike program. it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks - some would argue out of a sense that the pakistanis haven't been doing enough to crackdown on taliban and al qaeda activity within its borders. recently there was a
said president obama was briefed about the effort in 2010, much earlier than previously reported. the nsa denied mr. obama was briefed that far back. while at the white house spokesman jay carney said the president recognizes the need for additional constraints on gathering and using intelligence. >> and we're also reviewing these programs because the president believes it's very important that even as they look to keep america and americans safe, that they do so in a way that reflects the sincere concerns about privacy that americans have and that our allies have. >> back in berlin germany's interior minister would not rule out expelling u.s. diplomats. >> already in july i said during my talks in washington that it would be absolutely unbearable for us if german law was broken on german ground. now it turns out that this was the case. >> reporter: which made it nearly certain that the fallout is far from over and that difficult talks lie ahead. to that end a delegation of u.s. lawmakers plans to journey to brussels soon. >> ifill: we'll have more on how intelligence-gathering i
the clinton, bush, and obama administrations at a conference hosted by the university of chicago. here's a look at that. >> at the beginning of 2009 there's a sense of a missed opportunity, right? opportunity is taken and fiscal stimulus was needed. i just wonder if a different kind of stiplous with some of the changes larry hinted at, dropping some high-speed rail and energy and all that, might have gotten bipartisan support. right? i know today people, no republicans will oppose anything president obama suggests but you know, back at beginning of 09, many were really hoping the guy would bring us together and it didn't happen. i'm not blaming one side or the other. there is going to be fault on both sides but to me the question is a different set of choices have brought the country together in a way that didn't happen? >> you know i've been critical of some of the more classically democratic parts of the recovery program but i was there, you know. the senate minority leader said that the basic purpose of his mine for the leadership was to make sure that the president was not reelecte

obama yesterday. he said when you bet on america, that that pays off. i could not agree more. that thennounced select usa program will be stepping up its game in a number of ways. attracting business investment will be a major priority for commerce and the state department, including our foreign commercial service officers and our ambassadors. senior government officials, including the president himself, would do more than directly advocate for investment deals. we will create a single point of contact to provide you with a coordinated federal support and cut the red tape. and we will do more to support of the economic development organization at the regional state and city level. analogyde a sports it'll serve as a quarterback for increasing business investment in the united states. in addition, i should note that the president once again calls for congress to provide full funding for select usa in his budget. select usa already provides a great bang for the buck. the response to this summit shows that we can and will be doing much more to help you succeed. we want to captur
next venture. it is not just the big cities. you heard it from secretary pritzker and president obama. success stories. indian manufacturers expanding plants in upstate new york. singapore companies extending their supply chain to texas. german multinationals creating jobs in small towns in kentucky. investing in suburban ohio. south african energy firms investing in southwest louisiana. that is not in the future, that is now. there is no question that the united states is lucky to be able to offer the world's best climate today. as obama has made it clear that we are going to work at it even harder. it is about the future. we will refuse to sit still. a world is getting more competitive, but so are we. capital chases capital. i'm confident we will continue to get stronger and be more effective. select usa is a big reason why. as you heard yesterday and during the week that we are working hard now to make it easier for you to be able to invest here and making that effort is a much bigger part of our mission, especially now at the state department. at home, we are coordinating at every
of this issue. first, let's point out a column that was posted last night on " huffington post" by barack obama. the president says they should be judged only by getting their work done. that's the president huffington post piece that was posted last night. -- there are plenty of editorials on the other side of this issue. this is rum "the washington times" we are taking your calls and comments this morning. donald is up next from michigan on our line for independents. good morning. caller: good morning. man i am a 74-year-old old that has probably seen a love of life. the -- a love of life. -- a lot of life. i have a cousin who is gay. not wantve rights do to witness certain things right in front of me all the time. military as i used to be and i'm taking a shower, i do not wish to be in the shower with a gay person. that is my right. that should be a part of a nondiscrimination against me. i don't force my beliefs on other people. they should not force theirs on me. thank you. host: also on our independent line is robert from pennsylvania, good morning. hello, i just want to say that in reali

obama cosponsored the bill that was unanimously approved. conversely many so-called red states oppose a duty to retreat and even more restrictive states courts have held that retreat is required when preventing serious crime. indeed it's universal crucible that a person can use force when she reasonably believes is necessary to defend defend against a minute use of unlawful force. where there is no duty to retreat she is further justified in using deadly force if she recently believes it's necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. it's not an easy defense to assert and it certainly doesn't mean you can shoot first and ask questions later. these laws aren't a license to be a vigilante or behave recklessly. they protect law-abiding citizens. that is why this debate is emma. in ancient britain a duty to retreat refused -- by which the king under duty of us protection to the subjects. despite what gun prohibition is claimed the no retreat rule has deep roots in american law. if the supreme court in the unanimous 1895 case of beer versus the red states which senator cruz "appearing

obama's signature domestic policy that you could keep your plan if you like it but was not true but a deliberately. there is no real way to be polite about it. this was a lie. this was a lie from the beginning. these documents unearthed over last 24 hours make that abundantly clear. bill: are they parsing this language themselves? as you define the word is, is between the lines? >> they're in trouble. scrambling trying to come up with any way to explain this away when the plain language what the president said and what we've now seen makes it impossible to do so. valerie jarrett, top obama advisor sent out a tweet, saying in effect nothing in obamacare forces you off these plans. just these insurance companies that are doing this. bill: that seemed to be, a little bit of what we heard at briefing yesterday too. is that their defense now, push it off on the insurance companies? hey that language isn't in the law, talk to your insurance company. >> yeah, exactly. i think is going back to the white house playbook on everything. find a villain and blame everything on the villain. i

has been cooperating - first, with the bush administration, now with the obama administration on this drone strike program. certainly it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks, some would argue, out of a sense that the pakistanis have not done enough to crackdown on taliban in al qaeda activity within its borders. there was a front page story in the wopt out -- "the washington post" outlining in detail not just how much access the pakistanie government gave to washington, but they would get a top level intelligence briefing about the targets and strategies used in deciding when to launch the attacks. it's worth keeping note that pakistani citizens do not like the drone attacks. it's not surprising you'd see a vociferous objection from the highest levels in the islamabad government. they have to find a way to placate their citizens. >> if it's killing a person terrorizing so many pakistanis, why this call for accountability? >> you have to remember nawaz sharif, who used to be the prime minister has recently been elected as prime ministe
